All-new motorcycle to replace the Tiger 800
Pre-bookings for the new Tiger 900 have begun
Rally Pro variant is the top-spec Tiger 900
Triumph India will launch the new Tiger 900 on June 19, 2020. The new Tiger 900 will be available in three variants – GT, Rally and the top-spec Rally Pro. Online pre-bookings have already begun, and customers can reserve one for Rs 50,000. The new Triumph Tiger 900 was supposed to go on sale earlier this year, however, the COVID-19 pandemic and the global lockdowns that followed led to the delay.
The Tiger 900 is an all-new motorcycle, built completely from the ground up. Everything – from the frame, bolt-on subframe, suspension and engine – is brand new, and this has made a significant impact to the Triumph Tiger experience. We got a chance to ride the Tiger 900 in Morocco, earlier this year, and you can read about it here.
Some of the biggest highlights of the Tiger 900 include the new 888cc, inline-triple, liquid-cooled engine. This new unit produces 93.9hp and uses a 1-3-2 firing order that significantly changes the sound and characteristics, especially when compared to the Tiger 800's engine.
The Rally Pro variant is the one loaded with all the bells and whistles, and gets features such as LED fog lamps, comprehensive crash protection, six riding modes, a tyre pressure monitoring system, heated seats and a quickshifter.
Triumph, of late, has been surprising us with competitive pricing for its new models. We expect the Tiger 900 to cost about Rs 60,000 to Rs 1 lakh more than the Tiger 800, depending on the variant.
